Intelligence agencies may legally engage in political action in foreign countries as long as they do not break the law. The Israel lobby in the United States is meticulous in not technically acting as foreign agents and thus does not break the law despite acting as the long arm of Tevel, the Political Action and Liaison Department of the Mossad in arguing for joint American-Israeli interests. This is certainly not true of Muslim Brotherhood Intelligence (MBI) in the United States and other countries and the Foreign Agents Registration Act in the United States remain largely unenforced. MBI in the United States reached its peak of political influence during the Obama administration as President Obama despite not being a Muslim clearly sympathizes with the Muslim Brotherhood. MBI runs thousands of agents of influence in think tanks in Washington. The idea began to build to reconcile and align with Iran and ditch Saudi Arabia. This MBI concept gained a foothold during the Obama administration and has become a fixation during the Biden administration. It would seem somewhat peculiar that the KSA would become the whipping boy in Washington when the country is liberalizing, after all, the United States maintains convenient relationships with most dictatorships. However, this is not strange at all. The formation of the Anti-Saudi lobby in Washington roughly coincides with the Muslim Brotherhood falling out of favor and becoming outlawed in Riyadh.
Why are MBI agents of influence pushing this strategic dead end despite Tehran certainly not in any way being on board? The reason should be clear. First to bring Jihadists to power in Riyadh and second to otherwise harm the national interests of the United States. Washington is being stonewalled by Tehran and Riyadh could raise oil prices even further if it wants to show its displeasure over Biden’s unwillingness to bring down the mullahs through the imposition of a no-fly zone with air support to insurgents.
The relationship between Iran and MBI is complex, first, they are aligned everywhere but in Syria, second they are independent regional and global actors, but they are certainly aligned in their enmity towards the KSA and the USA. President Biden and Democratic members of Congress should consider who is behind the Anti-Saudi lobby and that those very forces are not at all well disposed towards American interests, in fact, quite the opposite. It is not in the interest of the United States of America for the US government to be manipulated by the MBI and it is absolutely essential to expose the nefarious machinations of Muslim Brotherhood Intelligence in Washington.
